Major Practice Areas
  • 1. CAMBRA, Caries Management by Risk Assessment
    • Customized care is available based on the individualized cardiogram and plaque check..
    • By computerizing medical information at all times, objective clinical evaluation is possible.
  • 2. Minimal Invasion Treatment
    • If medical care needed, we do our best to protect your healthy teeth area.
    • Using high-tech equipments, the decayed area will be precisely detected and removed.
    • We try to keep teeth alive as long as possible without dental pulp treatment (root canal treatment).
    • Accurate endodontic treatment using a micro-optical microscope - We combine dentistry and modern technology to provide more detailed and high-quality medical care services. Using a micro-optical microscope, the area of ​​the cavity can be clearly identified, so it enables to minimize a tooth removal and to reduce the number of procedures. In addition, it will be very useful for in-depth treatments in a case like when the neural canal is obstructed in the middle of endodontic treatments or for a surgery of the tip of a root, or fine cracks of the teeth.
  • 3. Safe Conscious Sedation
    • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) inhalation and other medicines can be used in the treatments to relieve the anxiety and fear that children might feel about dental care. By offering comfortable treatments to children, it allows safe and good quality of care as well as to shorten dental visit.
    • In principle, we focus on comforting patients, but if they are too young or are not able to cooperate for treatment, sedation will be used.
    • Guardians can stay with a patient during sedation.
    • Only a proven sedative will be used with a through monitoring while using sedatives( Puls oximeter and Capnogram).
  • 4. BIOBLOC Orthotropics

    In CDC, orthodontic treatment is performed to induce harmonious facial growth by finding the fundamental problem rather than simply having alignment of the teeth. This method of treatment will be helpful for harmonious growth of a face, for better breathing as well as for better quality of sleeping by expanding the airway. Children having too flattened area under the eyes, or having a longer face, or showing too much gum while opening their mouth, or having little jaws should have a consultation with a dentist before the age of 6 or 7.

  • 5. RAMPA

    RAMPA is a new concept of facial growth treatment that uses devices to expand the dental arches and airways for children or adolescents whose facial growth has not been completed. This enables to breathe through the nose and leads to the upper jaw to grow forward, as a result it secures enough space for teeth growing evenly. Therefore, this treatment helps the teeth to grow properly without extraction or surgery, and it will be helpful to have well formed face contours at the same time.
